Fire Safety in the Home

In a typical home fire, you and your family have less than 3 minutes to get out safely –from the time the smoke detector sounds before becoming overcome by the poisonous gasses in the smoke. Ensuring your home is properly protected by functioning smoke detectors, fire extinguishers, carbon monoxide sensors, and fire sprinklers, could mean the difference between a controlled situation and a tragedy. Each of these safety devices work to increase the amount of time you have to escape a fire and to save lives in your household.
